Widener senior wide receiver Anthony Davis has appreciated many things about his college career, but he says the chance to compete in his own backyard has been truly special. A graduate of Chester High, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound Davis has cherished being able to star at college in the same city. And he will get at least one more chance as Widener (12-0) hosts Linfield, Ore. (10-1) in an NCAA Division III quarterfinal at noon Saturday. "More than words can explain, it has meant so much to me, to be able to play here," Davis said after a recent night practice.

WIDENER UNIVERSITY wide receiver and kick returner Anthony Davis keeps a nonchalant attitude about his dynamic play on the field, but the senior is definitely deserving of attention for his stellar contributions to the Pride during his collegiate career. Davis, a preseason Division III All-American selection by The Sporting News and the reigning Middle Atlantic Conference Player of the Year, is rewriting his school's football record books this season. He broke Widener's career marks for receptions and all-purpose yards in September.

Eagles fans know how an Andy Reid news conference goes after a loss - especially a complete and utter disaster, such as the Kansas City Chiefs' blowing a 28-point lead to fall, 45-44, to the Indianapolis Colts in a wild-card game on Saturday. Ahem. It's on him. He has to do a better job of putting his players in better position to win. Time's yours. This painful loss, though, brought in a new wrinkle - stunned silence. "Sometimes the game speaks for itself, so you don't have to say a whole lot," he told reporters during their time on Saturday.

ANTHONY DAVIS missed his first six shots for the New Orleans Pelicans, but he was still the most impactful player on the court. The former No. 1 pick might not have been doing much offensively, but he had Dikembe Mutumbo-like intimidation going on at the defensive end. Whenever there was a drive to the lane by a 76ers player, it usually resulted in an attempted kickout (which was often intercepted) a double-pump travel, or a shot attempt that ended getting swatted by the Kentucky product.

The horn sounded midway through Friday's third quarter and Sixers head coach Brett Brown ambled onto the court with a clipboard in one hand and a dry-erase marker in the other. His rookie point guard, Michael Carter-Williams, had just completed one of his game-high five turnovers. And like many of those before, New Orleans cashed it in for fastbreak points to power to a 121-105 victory. Brown gathered his assistants for the early seconds of his timeout before huddling his players around the clipboard.

NEW ORLEANS - It was a simple question. One that Jrue Holiday quickly answered. Before Saturday's game against the 76ers, the New Orleans Pelicans point guard was asked how long it took to get over being traded by the Sixers on draft night. "You want me to be honest?" Holiday said. "I'd probably say a couple minutes. I love my teammates over there. But they named off [Pelicans players] Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis, at the time there was Ryan Anderson, Jason Smith. " The 23-year-old already had relationships through basketball with Gordon, Smith, and Davis.
